Sweatshirt – The House8 Style Company


“Like every other storm, this too shall pass for I will not lose my faith in you God”.

– Gracey







The minute I got this sweatshirt, I immediately thought of pairing it with a pencil skirt. Most people tend to wear theirs with jeans or joggers but that’s so clichè. What’s the point if we cant be creative with this thing called ‘Fashion’ right?

I must confess that it’s a size or two bigger than what I would normally wear and waiting to fix it might take forever, and I had time to shoot the look, so I decided to fold in the lower band and belt it causing that peplum effect. Picking this skirt was a no brainer as it compliments the colors on the sweatshirt.

I’m pretty excited it’s been raining because the heat we have been experiencing is worse than the worst nightmare you’ve ever or will ever have. (Point made?) and it gives me the opportunity to wear cool pieces like this one.

We all have different sense of style so I’d like to read your thoughts on how I styled this outfit and how you would style yours.

  1. I never would have guessed it was a sweatshirt! I’ve been seeing the picture on your Instagram profile pic and waiting for the post, it was worth it. I like the combination of blue and yellow and now that I’ve finally gotten a yellow blouse, blue pants coming up next yo!

    1. You finally got a yellow blouse? *moonwalks* I cant wait to see how you pair it.

  2. Hrmph!

    Gracey the chicken! (???? for emphasis) You could have tried to wear it over-sized na! Come over to the oversized side!

    I do love the colours- it makes for a creative styling. Nice pictures, love the location.

    Love the quote BTW. “Gracey” seems to suit you ????. (P.S: Don’t kill me because of the chicken thing please)


    1. Hey love,

      You really want me to cross over to the ‘over size’ side. Hmmm. Lol you get away for calling me a chicken cos ive got love for you.

  3. Hi Grace,

    Pretty lady! I love this look. The colours are so vibrant. I agree with you, fashion should be able to push the envelope sometimes. I like how you paired it with a pencil skirt, very lady like. The belt adds a nice touch.

    Knowing myself, I would have gone the clichéd route and paired it with light-weight joggers but with strappy sandals for a dressy feel.

    Ah! Thank God for the rain, the heat has been unbearable.

    Enjoy the rest of the week.

    1. Hi Nedu…

      Yes, the strappy sandals will def give it a dressy look. Thanks for reading as always.

  4. I like the blue and yellow combo.

    I would have worn it with jeans or leggings and heels.

    BTW, isn’t it too hot to wear a sweatshirt now?

  7. I love the sweat shirt! But I figured I’d be sweating a lot if I wear that this season.
    Apparently the Sun isn’t done with us yet….the rain is for the heat to get worse ;(
    BTW you have a beautiful song playing in the background, although it’s played without my consent _^_


    1. Hi June.
      Unfortunately, the sun isnt done with us yet. Sorry about the song playing without your consent. It can be paused if you rather not have it playing while reading.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  8. I would have worn it oversized mannn, 90% of my sweatshirts are sizes bigger than my normal.. I think I love them that way.
    But great styling, especially with the yellow skirt!!
